So thoughtful!!!

I am amazed at how thoughtful my husband is! Really!

I had knee surgery a week ago, and he has been the best caretaker I can ever have.
Preparing 3 meals a day, making sure I get the right nutrients, helping me exercise my leg, icing the knee, helping me take my first baby steps to get off the crutches, making a fun game out of walking. Am so glad and grateful to have him by my side.

But what inspired this post is today's lunch. He had to go back to work since yesterday. Yesterday he stayed home till lunch time, fed me and then he went. Today he couldn't stay, and didn't have time to make anything for me either. So he asked me if I could make some maggi? I said sure, since I am walking a lot now, and maggi is no big deal. Just put the pot and the maggi packet out on the counter so that I don't have to look for them.

When I went into the kitchen to make my lunch, I was amazed!
He had set the pot, filled in the required amount of water (so that I don't have to go to the sink to get it!), broke the noodles into even pieces and set aside in a plate, set out a spatula and a scissor next to the masala pouch! He knew I liked my maggi without any extra additions, so had prepared everything exactly like I would have wanted it. I did not have to move an inch to get anything else! He had even laid out the table for me! So much thought into something as simple as making noodles!

I am sincerely grateful to him and for him!

aneri_masi said...

@MumbaiD, yeah :)

@D, so true!

@sourish, you will need to stop smoking, stop picking up fights, calm down. THEN you will need to fast for at least 16 mondays and pray to this particular devi (naam nahi yaad aa raha) Then if devi is happy, you will get a good wife ;)

aneri_masi said...

@my space, totally cute :)

@preeti, jee dadiji, khush rahenge ;P

@hitchwriter, welcome and thank you :)

@xh, hai na?

aneri_masi said...

@scribbler, yep!

@RenuDi, it was a minor "adjustment" for my knee cap. Arthroscopic, so no incisions, just 3 small holes. It hurt a lot for one day, then been getting better ever since. Abhi to I am walking quite ok, not gone out of the house yet, but doing pretty good.
And he is a total sweetie :)

aneri_masi said...

@rakesh, haha, yeah, I guess so :)

@prashant, ekdum sahi bola!

@magical, welcome here! And happy new year to you too!

@tanu, haha, yes, i guess he read my post of "how the heck do i fall in love again", so wanted to show me how :)

Vrij said...

Awesome.. I hope I can be half as good as him!

aneri_masi said...

@Vrij, exactly! He's been warned not to get sick, I can never be as good!

P said...

Awww This is so so sweeeeet :) I would have been all teary eyed with joy!!!!

Now once you are better you have to make his favorite treats for whole month (even if you hate those things!)
Loved this post :)

aneri_masi said...

@Ria, yess :) And I bet you are just as lucky! hai na?

@IHM, I was all giggly, shaking my head and saying "yeda kuthla" (pagla kahin ka)

Arey I always make only his favorite things, so need to figure out how to make it up to him once he is better.

Anjuli said...

Nitin said...

aneri_masi said...

@nitin, oh my boy is not too bad, and I have always acknowledged that :) Ask the old timers here :)

As to my previous post, it still holds good, two separate things, right? I very graciously ate his cooking goof-ups...even when he himself didn't eat it! All coz it was made dil se!

And thanks so much for your wishes. Am doing good now, am back to work today :)

radhika said...

aneri_masi said...

@radhika, yes..the very one! Not a figment of my imagination :) Looks like he's learning a thing or two from your boy! Knee is healing well...so far been good.

ceedy said...
